The Day After; Tampa Bay

News and notes on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

--WR Joe Jurevicius, the star of last week's win over the Eagles, has a torn right MCL ligament and will be out from four to six weeks. The Bucs will increase the role of receivers Karl Williams and Reggie Barlow and are considering re-signing Charles Lee.
   --QB Brad Johnson has a right groin strain and may be limited in practice this week. But he is probable for Sunday's game at Atlanta.
   --CB Ronde Barber has a right hamstring strain but is listed as probable for Sunday's game at Atlanta.
   --LB Shelton Quarles, who has a broken left forearm, is out for Sunday's game in Atlanta.
   --WR Keenan McCardell said his cut block on Kavika Pittman was legal, despite claims by the Panthers that it was a chop block that occurred when Pittman was engaged with Bucs tackle Kenyatta Walker. "I remember it, clearly," McCardell said. "I just chopped him. I mean, it was a cutoff block. Seriously, it wasn't meant to be that way. It happened. That's my job to cut him and I did. I knew it when I hit him. It wasn't that he was engaged with anybody. He crashed down and I cut him. It's not illegal. There was no flag. Even when they look at it, it's not illegal. It's a cutoff block."
   --LG Cosey Coleman, who was overpowered by the Panthers' Kris Jenkins on the potential game-winning PAT Sunday, could be replaced on special teams and in the starting offense.
   --G Kerry Jenkins may replace Cosey Coleman at left guard in Sunday's game at Atlanta.
